…Urges Security Forces to Protect The People

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on the people of Kogi and Bayelsa state to remain at alert, resist all undemocratic brigand elements and take all legitimate steps to protect their votes to the very end.

The party also charged INEC and security forces to ensure that nothing happens to the ballots at every level and that results reflect only the will of the people as expressed at the polling units.

The PDP in a statement by it's spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan Saturday evening,  cautioned INEC to note that 'the people already know how they voted; they already know the outcome of the polls at the respective polling units, they already know how the parties are standing and as such, will never accept any alternation of results at the collation level." 

"The party also calls on the Inspector General of Police of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the military high command to be patriotic by taking measures to assist and protect the people, in their quest to protect their votes.

 

"The PDP charges security forces to check the agents of Governor Yahaya Bello and the APC, who are moving around collation centers with armed hoodlums and compromised security personnel, shooting and disrupting collation processes in their desperation to subvert the aspiration of the people.

"The IGP should therefore beef up security at the collation centers to ensure that only legitimate votes count. This is because any result that does not reflect the will of the people will surely not be accepted," the statement said.
